Hey Stratocaster;

The short version off the top of my head is that the Bible says that robbing a bank is a sin.
I think the thing that got the dead in trouble with that tune was that the song was deemed to be somewhat anti-woman.
That was right in the middle of the ERA movement.
Nowadays a sister has just as much right to go down and rob their local neighborhood savings and loan as a brother. See how much progress we have made?
But seriously that is a funny tune if you don't take it too literally of course.
